How to defeat the Behemoth?

The Behemoth seems a cool creature, does not attack if you do not provoke him. To defeat hopefully you will be with your friends. Using Barret use some strong long-range attacks.

  • Horn
  • Center Body
  • Lower Body

There are three areas to focus on, the Horn, Center Body and Lower Body. Assign Barret to deal with the horns and you can focus on destroying its Lower Body. It is tough to dodge this monster’s attack, so be prepared if he starts chasing you. Carry enough health potions and heal your friends as well as yourself before entering into a fight. The lower Body part can be destroyed faster using strong attacks. It is necessary to lock the target so that your attack can cause maximum damage to the single part of the body.


The Behemoth will be staggered after his lower body is destroyed, this where you can run towards the Horn and start attacking it. Switch to Punisher Mode and use strong attacks. You won’t get enough time because his lower body will heal before he is back on his feet try to inflict max damage on the horns.

Continue repeating the attacks, Behemoths Tail attack is lethal and pretty hard to dodge in melee combat. This monster does not have enough weakness, the only way to bring it down is attacking the upper or lower body. This will give you one knockdown, and stagger the best. Also, be ready to use your Abilities.
